|our most impressive icicle!|

|flavored salt directions coming soon!|
We've had a dusting of snow added to our 6-8 inches both Saturday and Sunday. Emerson, of course, assumes the snow came just for him. He loves it. Running, jumping, eating, playing and then hurrying in to sit next to the pellet stove when his little paws are too cold. We have icicles all around our house, forming as the snow melts off the roof. You can see from the photos above that they are beautiful in the sunlight.
This weekend was not productive at all. I've been battling a sinus infection and I'm hoping I'm winning. I guess only time will tell.
My kitchen helpers, Oliver and Emerson, made sure to supervise my every move while working in the kitchen this weekend. I don't know how I could do it without them!
The chickens are not happy about the cold or the snow. They dread them both. Last week they had to spend a couple of days in the coop - the temperatures were negative at night and only 11 to 12 degrees during the day. Just too cold for them. When they finally were let out again they chattered, cooed and were sincerely thrilled. It was too cute.
Oliver was going through a phase the past month or so where we weren't sure if he was sick, in pain, or what. After trying a couple of other things, on a whim, my vet had us try a diffuser with D.A.P. Have you used this? I'll write more about it in the next day or two but it seemed to have done the trick! My little man is almost back to his normal self and I can't tell you how relieved I am.
Jackson has been wearing his naughty pants around the house again. Yup! The guy just can't stay out of trouble. More on that tomorrow.....
Thank you to all our new followers and visitors. Welcome!! I am working on a few things to write about this month - flavored salt recipes, a story about eggs (cleaning, storing, using, etc), more about voluntary simplicity, more baking from the Bread Bible, organization, and more homemade dog treats. I hope you'll check back with us!
Hoping you all had a wonderful weekend!!
